The M-DCC, President G. Eric Knowles operates the chamber understanding that membership is the life blood of the Chamber, they have focused on the needs of the membership through education, advocacy, networking, and creating opportunities in both the private and public sectors.
In 2017 The Center for Family and Child Enrichment earned Level 2 Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH)
Recognition from the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) for using evidence-based, patient-centered processes that focus on highly coordinated care and long‐term, participative relationships.
The NCQA Patient-Centered Medical Home is a model of primary care that combines teamwork and information technology to improve care, improve patients’ experience of care and reduce costs. Medical homes foster ongoing partnerships between patients and their personal clinicians, instead of approaching care as the sum of episodic office visits. Each patient’s care is overseen by clinician-led care teams that coordinate treatment across the health care system. Research shows that medical homes can lead to higher quality and lower costs, and can improve patient and provider reported experiences of care.
